- Has anyone ever looked into this business/industry? If so, I am curious to hear your thoughts!
I have 6 2 yr. old avocado plants, takes about 6-10 years to fruit so no easy task! No guarantee of harvest either if grown directly from the seed or not spliced with another fruit-bearing tree. Makes sense on why the fruit is priced higher than others

It was insightful to learn how eager restaurants are to incorporate avocados to the menu as it is a simple way to increase margins, just like the option of adding bacon to your sandwich. Also, illuminating to see how grocery stores experience relatively little waste since all avocados are ugly which makes them less prone to being cosmetically damaged.
